Product Delays (updated: 6/30/22)

Due to ongoing international vinyl delays and supply chain issues we've created this page to give the latest updates we have on delayed items. Any information we have here is the latest update we have from the band, label, or vendor.

  • Allegaeon - DAMNUM CD (Metal Case Edition) [Allegaeon] - Cover manufacturing delayed, awaiting ETA - pre-order customers have had standard CD shipped to them and will get empty metal case sent once they arrive. *There were additional unforeseen delays on these cases due to recent COVID lock downs in China & needing to change manufacturer.*
  • Arkaik - Labyrinth of Hungry Ghosts 12" [The Artisan Era] - We have been notified production has completed and we are awaiting delivery of these records. We are doing pre-packing now in preparation of this so we can get the delayed orders out ASAP. You may receive a tracking number that does not activate yet during this time. It will activate once carriers scans the package (usually within 1 week of label creation).

General Shipping Notice (updated: 6/22/22)

Due to the general state of the world and shipping since 2020 (increased volume load on postal carriers, massive flight delays and cancellations, local shipping restrictions for many territories, rising gas/shipping/product costs, product shortages, global manufacturing and customs clearance delays, etc); please be aware that shipments may be delayed in transit. Any shipping methods and time estimates given at checkout are subject to change without notice due to this. Items marked "print on demand" or "direct to garment" may see additional delays. Items marked pre-order that experience significant delays may see the shipping method changed due to the method selected at checkout no longer being available or having massively increased in cost since time of order. We will do our best to get your items out as quickly as possible, but we cannot guarantee any arrival dates and customer service can not take any action for delays outside of our control.


We ship worldwide, but timing for international orders is completely out of our control and we can make no delivery estimates for international shipments at this time. Most international shipments have been arriving within 14-30 days, but some destinations or extended circumstances have seen packages in transit for 90-120 days before delivery. Standard USPS tracking does not give regular item updates once items leave the US, so it may look like your order is stuck in one place for an extended time while it is actually in transit to you. Additionally some areas may need to ship via alternate shipping methods than selected due to local regulations.

If your order experiences any shipping delays please contact the appropriate carrier before reaching out to customer service as they will be able to get you more up to date information or take action faster than we can.

Thank you!
